Think before you eat...

Sunday, March 09, 2014

I thought a lot about yesterday's binge today. I'm not trying to dwell, I'm trying to learn and understand. It took another 14000 steps... But I think I got it..... I really don't think before I eat- I think after I've ate or if I'm lucky, after a couple bites in. I need to stop and think before I eat. The only way I can ensure that happens is by logging it before I eat it. So that's my personal goal for the rest of March... Log it BEFORE I eat it.

I had a good day. Took the kids to see my Mom. They love playing in her backyard. It was great to see her and catch up. Now time for bed... Nighty night.

    When I feel off track, I try to log everything I am going to eat beforehand. Sometimes I will think twice before eating something if I have to go back on the computer and log it in. I do try to stick to the motto "If you eat it you have to own it" (on the tracker).

    I always log my breakfast before I eat it, sometimes even the night before. Sounds like you had a good Saturday!

Friday.... Ugh....

Friday, March 07, 2014

Not a great day for eating. I had 4 slices of pizza and a Reese's peanut butter egg, 3 cups of coffee with creamer and some dessert pizza. Can you say binge? Yeah- crap day.

So out of guilt or disgust or whatever, I walked and walked and walked. I really thought about why I ate all that. Self sabotage? Deprivation? Boredom? I really don't know. I wish I knew the answer. I feel like crap. I have a stomach ache and a head ache. I don't know how people eat like that every day.

17,400 steps of soul searching. Guess that's my positive for the day. The most steps I've had in a single day. Sad it wasn't for the right reasons. Tomorrow is a new day... looking forward to it!

    You are still hand over fist ahead of where you were when you started. This journey isn't easy. The fact that you can announce to everyone here that you had a bad day and the things that you did wrong says that you are still on track. Congratulations on being honest with yourself. :) emoticon

    Everyone else has said it but it's true. Pick yourself up and start over. Don't beat yourself up or dwell on it. You're human and it's ok :)

    I've learned that this journey isn't about perfection! It's about getting back up each time you fall and becoming stronger and more self-aware! You got this!!

    Girly you did awesome! Everyday is not gonna be a win but at least u walking your buns off to make up for it! Eating healthy and then slipping up and feeling like garbage really puts things in perspective for former life doesn't it.

Ready for daylight savings?

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

My body is ready. It's 8:41pm and I'm pooped. Feeling like I could go right to sleep. I probably won't feel the same when it's time to wake up though!

I'm finding it easier to get my 10k steps each day. I need to be better about drinking my water through the day, so that I'm not chugging it in the evening. Stayed under my calories, bit high on carbs today- but low on sodium, so all is good.

Kids are starting to get a little better. It's amazing what amoxicillin can do!

    I don't mind the change in time so we get more day time but I just HATE losing that hour!
Thanks for the kind words on my blog post!

    I'm ready too. I remember when Indiana didn't have DS. I liked that much better but now this change means we're closer to spring. WTG on reaching your step goal. Glad the kiddo's are on the mend. emoticon

Sick kids

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

Both my babes are sick. My son kept waking up saying his ear hurt. You feel so helpless when they are sick. $35 co-pay (per kid) and both are now on amoxicillin. Hopefully all will be better in a couple days. I'm super tired.

Over my step goal, drank all my water, under my calories!

Today I was offered a delicious peanut butter cookie dipped in chocolate and a luscious chocolate brownie. I declined both!! Take that March!! You're going down!!

Sorry the kiddo's are sick. I started to feel a little tickle in my throat yesterday afternoon. By last night it was starting to set in. I'm taking Zicam but woke up with a sore throat this morning. I'm hoping I can knock it down a bit with the Zicam. Good Luck with the kids. Hope they feel better soon.

Kuddo's on the great choices!!

Just another Monday

Monday, March 03, 2014

I did something to my lower back. It's been bothering me today. I took ibuprofen and was going to skip the gym- but decided exercise and stretching might make it better as long as I didn't push too hard. It isn't feeling as stiff now. Guess tomorrow will tell if it's made it any better or worse.

Got all my steps in. Stayed under my calories. Almost done with my water. Overall a good day!

    I've been having this on and off for a few months now. A visit to the chiropractor helped but definitely need to see her again. BTW...thanks for the spark you left on my page. I too am praying that my MIL passes peacefully and can be freed from this cancer that has taken hostage of her body these past 5 yrs.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!!! emoticon

    It's hard when your body tries to talk you out of exercise. Way to power through it!
